Jump into a jeep and take a Jurassic Park style of off road adventure on the slopes of Mount Merapi.

It takes one hour to reach the start point for the tour from Yogya. The jeep rental starts from Merapi. During the two hour jeep tour you’ll drive around on the slopes of Mount Merapi and visit villages destroyed by the 2010 volcanic eruption. It’s an amazing landscape. The views are beautiful. It’s also interesting to see the impacts of the last volcanic eruption (Merapi is one of the most active volcanoes in Indonesia).

There are a lot of things you can combine the Merapi Volcano Tour with. If you enjoy an adventure we recommend combining white water rafting and the jeep tour. For a more relaxed itinerary you can visit Borobudur Temple for sunrise, do the jeep tour in the early afternoon and then relax and explore the grounds of Ullen Sentalu Museum.
